1. Not sure why we would want to have FDS as a layer on top of an SQL  

2. Do you have a way to make FDS' schema meet all the requirements  
currently listed on Tom's "new account system" wiki page (e.g. groups  
that inherit members from other groups, users with multiple e-mail  
addresses listed, and so forth)?

3. Do you have a query language for FDS that can do anything usefully  
near SQL?
